3) Off-site improvements


in conjunction with a temporary industrial storage yard on 2.5 acres in an M-1 (Light Manufacturing) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District.  Generally located on the northwest corner of Ford Avenue and Jones Boulevard within Enterprise.  SB/mk/ml (For possible action)


This application was triggered by ZV-2454-12 is an active zoning violation for outside storage of equipment without permits on the property.  The applicant states that this request was triggered by the termination of a 25 year old lease for a previous storage area which was leased at Arville Street and Pioneer Avenue.


The TAB’s intent:

·   Protect the residential to the west.

·   Property to be developed consistent with other business along Jones Blvd.

·   Allow the applicant to remain in business.


The TAB discussed the following:


·   The applicant states: They are not financially capable of full property development currently.

·   The applicant intends to develop the property within two years.

·   The residents to the west need a buffer from this site.

·   The applicant’s proposed one 24 inch box tree every 30 is not adequate

·   The north property line needs to be landscaped due to the site line from residences north of the applicant’s property.

·   There is no water connection to the property

·   The water connection cost may be beyond the applicant’s ability to finance.



·   The Use Permit Waiver is required until the screening is installed

·   TAB does not consider jersey barriers and chain link fence appropriate for the area.


         Property development

·   The property development is not consistent with other businesses along Jones Blvd.

·   The other business along Jones Blvd developed the property prior to beginning operations

·   The final Jones Blvd. design between Blue Diamond and Ford may significantly alter Jones Blvd. in this area.

·   The Restrictive Covenant Agreement should assure the property owner will contribute to the development of Jones and Ford.


TAB conclusions:

·   The landscaping should be an intense landscape buffer and installed with 1 year.

·   The screening should be in place within six months

·   Until the final design for Jones Blvd. connection to Blue Diamond and Pebble is complete the off-site can be waived.

·   The TAB believes a two year review is too long due to the nature of the application and the effects on surround property.




Approved per staff conditions



1) Allow alternative landscaping; and

2) Waive enhanced paving along pedestrian circulation routes.


DESIGN REVIEW for a parking lot on 1.0 acre in an M-D (Designed Manufacturing) Zone in the CMA Design Overlay District.  Generally located on the north side of Capovilla Avenue and the west side of Edmond Street (alignment) within Enterprise.  ss/pb/ml  (For possible action)


The landscaping presented greatly exceeds the Title 30 Standards.  The NV Energy power line easement restricts where trees can be placed around this parking lot.


The parking lot is isolated and not visible from highly travelled public roads.  The TAB opinion is in this case the enhanced paving is not needed.



09/04/12 PC


1.      UC-0345-12 – RJSV, LLC:

Approved per staff conditions

Delete: Public Works condition # 1

USE PERMIT for a health club.


WAIVER OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS to reduce on-site parking requirements in conjunction with a health club within an existing office/warehouse complex on 4.6 acres in an M-D (Designed Manufacturing) Zone in the MUD-3 and CMA Design Overlay Districts.  Generally located on the north side of Arby Avenue, 330 feet west of Torrey Pines Drive within Enterprise.  SS/bk/ml  (For possible action)


The TAB’s opinion is the traffic generated by this Use Permit does not require an update to the traffic study.  With a max class size of 16 there will not be significant traffic generated to warrant an update.


2.      VS-0364-12 – DR HORTON, INC:

Approved per staff conditions


VACATE AND ABANDON a drainage easement of interest to Clark County located between Terrill Avenue and Starr Avenue, and between Haven Street (alignment) and Giles Street in an R-1 (Single Family Residential) Zone within Enterprise (description on file).  SS/dm/ed  (For possible action)


The staff report did not adequately describe the area to be vacated.  The applicant’s display resolved all questions.


09/05/12 BCC


3.      DR-0369-12 – PARDEE HOMES OF NEVADA:

Approved per staff conditions (3 – 1)


DESIGN REVIEW for a single family residential development on 10.0 acres in an R-2 (Medium Density Residential) Zone in the MUD-3 Overlay District.


WAIVERS OF CONDITIONS to a zone change (NZC-0311-11) requiring the following: 


1) all 4 sides of each single family home to have enhanced elevations, which may include window and door fenestration and other architectural features, such as changes in building materials and color variation, consistent with the principal elevation, per plans on file; and


2) landscaping along perimeter of development that is either visible from Blue Diamond Road or adjacent to zoned or planned commercial development, including portions of east, south, and west oriented lots, excepting required street landscaping, to have 24 inch box Mondel pines or similar large evergreen trees, 20 feet on center on the residential side of the wall. 


Generally located on the west side of Quarterhorse Lane, 150 feet north of Blue Diamond Road within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/al/ml  (For possible action)


Waiver of condition #2 was put into place by PC and BCC for two reasons.


·   The Title 30 requirement for non-conforming zone changes to provide the buffer to surround properties. 

·   Provide a landscape buffer to traffic effects along Blue Diamond.


The applicant felt the increased rear yard setback from 15 to 30/40 feet would provide the buffer required by the code.  The majority of the TAB agreed with this position.


The opposing opinion is landscaping inside the rear yard fence is a better buffer to Blue Diamond traffic.  The landscaping should be provided by the developer to comply with Title 30.  The condition should be changed to allow the developer and the buyer to select landscaping to be planted.



Approved per staff conditions:

ADD Current Planning condition:

·   Right-of-way vacations require approval of NZC-0318-12


VACATE AND ABANDON easements of interest to Clark County located between Agate Avenue and Blue Diamond Road, and between Buffalo Drive and Pioneer Way, and portions of rights-of-way being Oleta Avenue located between Buffalo Drive and Pioneer Way, and Jerlyn Street located between Agate Avenue and Blue Diamond Road in a U-V (Urban Village - Mixed Use) Zone and an H-2 (General Highway Frontage) Zone in the MUD-4 Overlay District within Enterprise (description on file).  SB/jt/ed  (For possible action)
